Everything was peachy at the Belvedere coming out party for the new peach flavored vodka. For the occasion, Belvedere Peach Nectar created a garden themed party at E.P & L.P. rooftop to unveil the new flavor in collaboration with Chef Chloe, vegan chef and author Chloe’s Kitchen who created exclusive recipes to complement the yummy cocktails.
Made exclusively from California peaches and ripe Polish apricots, as with all the Belvedere luxury vodka flavors, there is no added sugar or additives. Our favorite cocktail was the refreshing Belvedere Peach Nectar Spritz , which we may have tried numerous times, all in the name of journalism.
Belvedere Peach Nectar Spritz
1.5 oz. Belvedere Peach Nectar
1 oz. Sweet Vermouth
Top with Sparkling Water
Combine all ingredients in spritz glass over ice. Garnish with a slice of peach and a sprig of thyme.
Chef Chloe also had some handy party tips for this summer’s entertaining.
Chloe’s Tips on How to Host the Perfect Summer BBQ:
Garnishing Your Cocktail
While it can be tempting to let your imagination run wild when garnishing your summer cocktail, remember that all good cooks use garnishes that represent an ingredient actually present in the drink. Think peach slice for a Belvedere Peach Nectar spritz, or pineapple wedge for a piña colada …no rosemary sprig unless you can taste rosemary in the cocktail!
Cocktail on the Fly
No time to play bartender at your own party when you’re busy greeting guests? No problem! Setting up a thoughtful do-it-yourself bar can be just as fun. Display a container with decorative straws, a pail of ice, soda water, Belvedere Peach Nectar, a refreshing juice like mango or coconut water, and some fresh fruit or cocktail umbrellas. Your guests will have fun mixing their own cocktails and can adjust the strength according to personal preference.
